Our health and well-being should be one of our primary  concerns and values. The late Steve Jobs, Co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc. is on record having said in some of his last words; " At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realized that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death......."  These words were recorded moments before his passing on October 5, 2011 at age 56.

Words as these shows the relevance of a sound physical body over significantly great wealth. As each of us could probably relate a similar story with someone near to us. In a recent article taken from on the Rates of Pre-diabetes Rise it states; "New research suggests type 2 diabetes, long considered a disease of the overweight and obese, might not need excess pounds to strike."

The study which appears in the July/August 2016 issue of the Annals of Family Medicine, found nearly one in five normal weight people in this country has pre-diabetes, a condition that can lead to type 2 diabetes. "For folks older than age 45, one third of those at a healthy weight have pre-diabetes," the study author said. "People with pre-diabetes have higher than normal blood sugar levels, but not high enough to be considered diabetes." Good eating habits are essential.
